What no Vincent owners

Howard R Davies founded Vincent in 1924 and won the 1924 Senior Isle of Man TT on his own-make bike but his firm failed in 1927. In 1928 Philip Vincent, a wealthy undergraduate, bought the HRD name and designed a new motorcycle with his own spring frame and marketed it as Vincent HRD, with a choice of mostly JAP or Rudge engines.

Too posh


And despite a class above... sound far far too much like a Hurley IMO ~ ( Just a few more cylinder angle and it would have sounded like a Ducati ~ lol )

Oh ~ a big positive though.. designed by an Ozzie ! RIP ~ Phil Irving ~ ~~ rock ` ' ( before it became more fashionable ~ & profitable to be a world class winning motorcycle racer ~ rock-on )
